Living Under the Shadow: The Archaeological, Cultural and Environmental Impact of Volcanic Eruptions (Paperback)

Not available.


Throughout human history, many cultures have developed in volcanic environments, and have been shown not only to survive in the face of what may be a threatening locality, but have adapted to and been stimulated by the presence of volcanic activity around them. Living Under the Shadow explores the relationships between people and their volcanic environments, debunking popular myths and highlighting important new research that will present exciting future avenues for examination. The work of the 18 authors gathered together in this volume cover cultures and environments ranging from the Palaeolithic peoples of Europe, through hunter-gatherers of New Guinea and Alaska, Neolithic cultures in Japan, North American tribal cultures, early polities of Central America and the Bronze Age Mediterranean to the recent historical period.
